All of these products are made entirely in the USA. Everything is cast in the US and hand finished in the company facility in Atlanta. Nothing is outsourced, not even the packaging. Everything is made of either 100% lead-free pewter or sterling silver. The unique way they finish the pewter and the fact that the pewter actually has a percentage of sterling silver really gives it that exceptional shine. All of the materials are FDA approved. They can easily be polished with a pewter polish found in your local hardware stores.
